Re: VOY S6: Ashes to Ashes

Like a lot of Voyager episodes, there is potential here - wasted potential. This episode in-particular disappoints me more than a lot of others, because I don't buy that a Starfleet officer who spent three years lying through her teeth and doing god-knows-what to get back home would abandon that after a couple days of disappointment. This is supposed to be Star Trek, right? So why are we acting like Ballard has to look and act human to be a member of Starfleet? And why are we watching Harry Kim fail with women when we could be watching the crew wrestle with the ethics of people who harvest other species' dead?

I kind of wish that the resurrected now-alien was Samantha Wildman, who'd have fought tooth and nail to come back for Naomi's sake. This would allow the A and B plots to interact, making the whole motherhood thing less shoehorned-in. And I wish the reset button hadn't been pressed at the end of the episode because apparently humans are racists now, the universal translator is broken, and Kobali can't work for Starfleet.
